    Is there a way to make the discussion in the Social Groups so that when there is a new post, it will show up under you subscriptions? I have to keep refreshing my page to know when somebody has posted something new.

    I did that, I get the email notifications. When you subscribe to a thread on a forum, you can tell when there is a new post by simply clicking on "View Subscriptions" under the Action Panel. This does not happen for discussions in Social Groups, or at least not for me. I'm just brainstorming is all. Not trying to offend anybody. ;D

    Amcarrig can you clarify please? You gave me the impression that conversation is not allowed in the bucket threads

    It's hard to be really precise here but figure that good conversations say about sports or movies or other off topic subjects are fine but a thread that gets to 20 pages within a few hours and that has no real content besides "LOL" or other one word or non-substantative type posts are what we're trying to avoid.
